  •  The NRA is toast even with the military (4+ / 0-)

    I am in the military, have been for 30 YEARS.. Probably 90 percent of the folks I have served with own guns of one kind or another.  VERY FEW are NRA members.  I know three hard core NRA members (nuts) in the military.  One owns a gun shop and he eats sleeps and breaths nothing but guns, he is also a big Tea party guy and racist as the day is long... go figure.  The second one has a gun fetish, owns like 200 guns and thousands of rounds of ammo, he also has a doomsday bunker in his backyard... go figure.  The third one, really really likes to hunt, like as much as humanly possible. He actually is not that bad a guy.  Today regardless of politics or what types of guns folks own, almost without exception the military folks deride the NRA as run by corporate mouthpieces for the gun and ammo companies and unworthy of their support.
    The NRA using their news conference to come out spewing the same old line of "We need more people armed with guns" did nothing to change that.  

    Yes, Reality does have a Liberal bias. So does the truth. And the Republicans will never change that, no matter how much money they spend.
